You could override it with a custom hack to the router.php, what is it your trying to achieve.

Looking at the function, im sure many of the so components override this to create the url;s so you could look at how they do it and use that, then put that into a plugin if you wished,

you couldd probably do it in a custom php module as well

I suppose you could maybe put some kind of if/else statement to not use _buildSefRoute on a specific component, maybe using an id, then have a custom function to change the urls of that one component.

Actually you can disable url for specific components

this link should help

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:a92CLv6FVAsJ:www.consult-cts.com/blog/%3Fp%3D22+joomla+_buildSefRoute+on+one+component+only&cd=4&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=uk

so if you disable it for the component of your choice and then you have in your plugin what you want to do it should technically work.

I noticed that site mentioned editing the router.php file for the component and not the global one.

Hope this helps
